Conference Guides for [IEEE-CIS, INNS] conferences : Although this guide was initially set up for IJCNN2019, and was used for IEEE WCCI 2020, hopefully some of the basic information may still help [organising committee members, authors] up to 2023-2025 (assuming a half-life of links and process information of 3-5 years?). The Authors' and Publications menus have been combined, allowing authors to see the Publications Chair perspective as well. I am no longer keeping this up to date. Bill Howell, 11Dec2020

Publicity channels

Table of Contents :

Introduction :

There are many potential marketing channels for promoting a conference, including the [organisers, past attendees] themselves. I am not aware of any serious marketing analysis to help with the selection of conference publicity channels. Instead, this tends to follow past practices and the preferences of the General Co-Chairs.

I've put a lists of items from past conferences below. There may still be "leftover scraps of information" in the source document.

Social media, and online courses are interesting channels, with some success by Simone Scardapane with Facebook in the past.

Targeted printed media

Targeted web and electronic media

Major Conferences

Where possible, have an attending INNS member give an announcement, provide flyers/ posters, more to be added.

Targeted Organizations

Old or infrequent marketing channels

Several old approaches haven't been used much in recent years, some because of budgets, others perhaps because of the newer social media opportunities etc. : Again, there may still be "leftover scraps of information" in the source document.
